    BATE

      Tip Reasoning

      A win would take Barcelona to 10 points, a figure that is almost without exception enough to make the last 16 and they will secure qualification on the night if Roma fail to beat Bayer Leverkusen.

      A brace from Ivan Rakitic gave Barcelona a 2-0 win in Belarus when the sides met a fortnight ago and back at the Camp Nou you have to fancy them to rack up an even more convincing win.

      BATE have suffered some real maulings on the road in this competition and they are sure to travel with a little bit of trepidation about what the Catalans have in store for them. They have conceded 4 or more goal in 5 of their last 6 Champions League group stage away matches and failed to score on the road in last season’s competition.

      They were beaten 4-1 at Bayer Leverkusen in their only away game so far this term and the defending champions might want to put down a little marker to the rest of Europe here having not been entirely convincing in the competition so far despite their position on top of the group.

      At 11/10 they look like good value with a -3 Asian Handicap. Neymar and Luis Suarez were both on target in the 2-0 win at Getafe on Saturday and the pair have netted 8 goals between them in Barca’s last two matches at the Camp Nou.

      This should only be a question of how many Barca want to score. BATE are perhaps slightly improved on the side they were last year when they conceded 24 goals in the group phase but a 5-0 win should not be beyond the Catalans and can be backed at 9/1.
